The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) Charitable Foundation was established in 2013. Since being established the TDS Charitable Foundation has funded such projects designed to educate both tenants and landlords about the rights and obligations associated with the private rental sector with the aim of raising the standards of renting.
The last round of funding awarded over £70,000 to fund such projects, with a focus on refugee and student housing.

The aim of reducing conflict between landlords and tenants through education and open communication has always been important to TDS.
